Penn Security Laboratory

What we do

SECLAB is a collaborative environment for the study of computer and network security, privacy, reverse engineering and discovery. We use engineering skills, including hacking, to investigate vulnerabilities in networks, police radios, and automobiles, to name a few.

The lab is located in 102 Moore Building.
